#1. CM Punk & The Urn
I haven't been offended by any of CM Punk's actions lately. His use of Paul Bearer and his real-life death doesn't bother me on some sort of moral or ethical level; I'm just not sure it's the best way to go with the Undertaker program.
Punk's segment on Raw this week fell flat for me, and he didn't seem to love it either.
I don't read too much into the recent reports of CM Punk having issues with Creative, but it wouldn't surprise me either. He's a confident, Type A personality that speaks his mind. There's going to be conflicts and disagreements. I just wonder what Punk thought of his spot on Monday.
The unsolicited convenience of William Moody's death worked the first week, but I would have rather them gone away from it after the tribute show and back to the original plan. Punk's first promo set it up well, and he could have quickly gone back to selling it this week. Rather, they decided to have him continue the cheap route of using the urn.
I still expect Taker and Punk to be one of the highlights at this year's WrestleMania, but I'd prefer they abandon the overt and personal, and return to more of a traditional build for the match.
